    Default Would YOU kill the baby?

    You are a Jewish person inside Nazi occupied France. You are hiding under the floorboards with many others Jewish people, when evil Nazis come in to search houses near by. As you are there, a baby with the jewish hiders starts to cry.


    This baby cannot stop crying, and you know if it continues to cry, you, and everyone under the floor, could possibly be discovered by the nazis and killed. You don't have time to find out if they're going to skip your house or not, and even then, there is still the possibility of them hearing it.

    Do you kill the baby?

    NO CHEATING

    No "muffling his cries, getting it drunk, etc"

    You either kill it, or you don't and risk the possibility of getting everyone else killed.

    No. I would try to muffle his crying, but I would never kill a baby, or anyone...

    Except if someone try to rape or kill me, in those cases I'm not responsible for my acts.

    Depends how I feel about the baby. Not all babies grow up to be perfect. Otherwise, I don't think I'd have brought myself to be hiding from the invaders in the first place - I'd want to fight the nazi's instead. When the Soviets invaded the Germans in their towns, the Germans met them with heavy resistance, so I don't see why jews should *necessarily* be running from the Nazi's, in the same context.

    I would feed the baby alcohol so it goes to sleep. Win/win!

    I'd rip off a bit off my garments and put that in it's mouth. Alternatively, sit down with the baby inside my arms to make sure as little as possible of the potential sound to escape our hiding spot. Maybe ask others to stand around me and form another "wall" for the sound to bounce within. Maybe placing myself so that I would be lying down with the baby beneath me but make sure not to weigh down too much and have others lie on top/close to me - and hopefully save the baby and us.
    Or, if I have something like a straw that is blunt in one end, I would push that down the baby's throat and let it breathe through it, most probably ending any sound it'll make. Unfortunately, this might entail other discomforts later for the baby so I'm not sure this would be on my top most used strategy.

    If, however, the walls are so thin and it is possible to hear even a slight whisper if you walk close by, and I would have no time to hesitate... That baby might be dead because of my rough handling of the babies neck, as I would have to shove my thumb or any other kind of blunt object into its mouth with speed.

    Okay, I get the gist of your question, so I won't go with the answer, "cover the baby's mouth and let hir breathe through hir nose." No, I wouldn't kill the baby.
